Summary: COMPLETE! When Lórien is attacked by the forces of Dol Guldur, Amorith is sent to request Thranduil's help. But this mission is more than a simple request for assistance, for between Amorith and Thranduil lies a deep shadow of pride and prejudice, and many hidden secrets begin to surface. Will she be able to overcome the King's mind, or will both Elven realms fall into darkness forever? Precedes The Circles of the Worlds in the series A Time of Healing.

Story Notes:
I started this story several years ago, and have just returned to it. It is posted on another site but since I haven't recieved any reviews for my new chapters, I thought I'd upload my story elsewhere. I am currently revising some of the older chapters as new twists and developments came to me that do not fit the older way. The story is based upon the memoirs of the main character, Amorith. It begins with her sister, Forfirith, delivering the memoirs to their mother in Valinor. At times Amorith narrates the story herself, and at other times it is narrated in third person. There will be references to events and places from The Silmarillion. It is assumed that Glorfindel of Imladris is one and the same Glorfindel of Gondolin. On a similar note, Celeborn is of Sindarin origin, not Teleri, as I have read recently.

First story in the series A Time of Healing. Complete, yet small revisions being made.

1. Return Home by EldarinPrincess [Reviews - 6] (1619 words)
Elvish words are translated at the end of the chapter.

2. Into Thoughts by EldarinPrincess [Reviews - 2] (1834 words)
Elvish translations at the end of the chapter.

3. Beginnings by EldarinPrincess [Reviews - 1] (4408 words)
This is the true beginning of the story. Amorith's narration is italicized. As a suggestion for all, read The Silmarillion, especially the chapters dealing with Fëanor, the oath, and all that happened. I touch lightly on these matters, and do not got to far into them. I tried my best to keep the chronology of events true to Tolkien. As always, any suggestions gladly welcome!

4. Poolside Problem, Talan Trouble by EldarinPrincess [Reviews - 3] (3310 words)
There are references to events that can be found in the appendices of RotK. This chapter has been modified from its original content to suit the new direction of the story. Chapter re-uploaded 12/18/10 for a small error: Eryn Lasgalen changed to Eryn Galen.
